Other than the hot glue, these are easy enough for kids to make 😀 My girls (age 9 & 11) are making a batch of Cupid’s Arrows tomorrow, and they completely different ideas on how they want to use the arrow. I will try to take some pictures, and upload eventually, to show you some of their ideas with these Valentine crafts 😉
